Well said.

Blank - I don't think his opinions/assumptions of the Sox pen are any more unreasonable than your opinions/assumptions about the Yankee rotation. I didn't really understand how you can criticize him for making assumptions when you're assuming that Wright doesn't implode, Moose and RJ stay healthy and effective, Chacon continues to impress after coming down from the mountain, and Wang is able to contribute upon his return.

And the Sox are still the champs.

This wildacrad chase is turning into something great. I think the Yankess will pass Bostona and Oakland will pass the Angels. This will leave The Angels, Red Sox and Indians fighting for the wild card. THe Indians will win it though because of their easy schedule. Boston will choke!!!

come on man, you've got to be joking me with your crap. wright and chacon have given us a good amount of work this season to base our opinions with. you're telling me tat you're certain that foulke who was getting light up like a xmas tree before he got hurt and got smacked around in the minors is gona post amazing numbers down the stretch? im not saying it cant happen, but blank's assumptions have a lot more backing them then your opinion. the only thing not biased about your statement was tat the sox are still the champs.

You do know that WharfRat is a Yankees fan just like you, right, so how could he be biased? If anything, that was a very impartial statement.

And he didn't say anything about Foulke.. :-?

His point was that blankman's opinions/assumptions have the same backing in relation to those that believe the Sox's pen will do fine, and I'd tend to agree.

I just saw on sportscenter a few days ago that the red sox have the worst bullpen in the AL.

Interesting.

of course you would agree. you're a yankee hater, simple as that. he agreed with what the other guy said before, which was talking about the red sox pitching, which includes the pen. last time i checked, foulke was in the boston bullpen. :-?

A Yankee hater? Me? :-b I mean sure I don't like them, but what does that have to do with anything I have responded too. I also dislike the Red Sox immensely, so how could anything I write have anything to do with being a so-called "yankee hater?"

Are you even reading what I'm reading? WharfRat was responding to a post in which both the Yankees' rotation and the Red Sox bullpen were mentioned.

Have you not yet realized that WharfRat is actually a fan of the Yankees? ;-7

Yeah, that is an interesting stat, but the most telling one would be the 3 game lead the Sox have on the Yanks. :-D
